Terms of Service & Community Guidelines

Terms of Service:

By renting this room for personal use you agree to the following conditions:

  • Check in at the appropriate time scheduled:

    If you (or anyone in your party) do not check in a minimum of 15 minutes after the hour of you’ve scheduled time, the slot will then open for public use and your reservation is voided.

  • Exit the room at your scheduled time:

    EXAMPLE:  If your rented time block starts at 4:00PM and ends at 6:00PM, 6PM is when you are to be packed up and exiting the room. This helps us to keep the room in rotation for the next group to come in. Not complying with the designated check out time may result in an overtime fee.

  • Published Media Content:

    Any content created on Paragon City Games Property, or with Paragon City Games equipment is subject to the restrictions listed within our Community Guidelines as posted below.

  • Renting Equipment:

    All Paragon City Games equipment goes through a standard check out checklist with a staff member before use to ensure proper working order. All equipment you use must be checked by a staff member to ensure the equipment is functional and in good condition before returning it to Paragon City Games and receiving your deposit. Future use of Paragon City Games facilities and equipment is conditional upon treatment of said facilities and equipment, and may be revoked.

 


Paragon City Games Community Guidelines

Respect the Community:

Please be respectful of the community by honoring others for their views and ideas. Paragon City Games is a place for all to come join for the love of the game. Whether it be RPG, Board, Dice, or any other variance. We all come here to have fun, have fun with us! In other words, Don’t be salty.

Renting the Pendlehaven Studio:

  • Be Respectful of the Room:

    Please do not leave any personal effects or belongings within the room. All leftover objects between sessions will be gathered into a “lost and found” and if not claimed by closing time of that day will be thrown out. If any accidents/damages occur during your use of the room, please report it to staff immediately so that we can fix it quickly. By doing so we are keeping the space ready for the next creators to come and do their work.

  • Time Management:

    Please be mindful of your rented time within the room. If the room had been rented up to a certain time, please vacate the room by that time for the next group to come in.

  • Equipment:

    Please be respectful of any Paragon City Games equipment rented during your use of the studio. If you are unsure about an object’s proper operation please ask staff to assist you.

  • Content:

    Media created on Paragon City Games property or with Paragon City Games equipment must adhere to the guidelines below. Including but not limited to guidelines surrounding nudity, promotion of bullying/terrorism, promotion of violence/self harm, copyright infringement, or other violations of content as part of our Community Content Guidelines. For clarification on Paragon City Games stance on these subjects please review below.

Self-Expression Welcomed, But Please Avoid…

  • Malicious Speech:

    Don’t encourage violence or hatred. Do not make threats or statements that incite violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism. Especially don’t do so based on things like race, ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, gender identity, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation. If you encounter negative speech that doesn’t rise to the level of violence or threats of violence, we encourage you to dismantle negative speech through argument rather than censorship. That said, if you encounter anything especially heinous, tell us about it at requests@paragoncitygames.com.

  • Harm to Minors.

    Be thoughtful when posting anything involving a minor. Don’t post or solicit anything relating to minors that is sexually suggestive or violent. Don’t bully minors, even if you are one.

  • Promotion or Glorification of Self-Harm.

    Don’t post content that actively promotes or glorifies self-harm. This includes content that urges or encourages others to: cut or injure themselves; embrace anorexia, bulimia, or other eating disorders; or commit suicide rather than, e.g., seeking counseling or treatment, or joining together in supportive conversation with those suffering or recovering from depression or other conditions. Dialogue about these behaviors is incredibly important and online communities can be extraordinarily helpful to people struggling with these difficult conditions. We aim for Paragon City Games to be a place that facilitates awareness, support and recovery, and we will remove only those posts or blogs that cross the line into active promotion or glorification of self-harm.

  • Gore, Mutilation, Bestiality, or Necrophilia.

    Don’t showcase the mutilation or torture of human beings or animals, or their remains.

  • Deceptive or Fraudulent Links.

    Don’t post deceptive or fraudulent links in your posts. This includes giving links misleading descriptions, putting the wrong “source” field in a post, setting misleading click-through links on images, or embedding links to interstitial or pop-up ads.

  • Privacy Violations.

    Don’t use Paragon City Games to deceptively obtain personal information. Don’t post content that violates anyone’s privacy, especially personally identifying or confidential information like credit card numbers, social security numbers, or unlisted contact information.

  • Content that is inappropriate for various audiences.

    We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Paragon City Games. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks.

  • Copyright Infringement:

    Please do not post anything that does not legally belong to you. I.E. anything you personally did not write, draw, or create. There are some exceptions regarding “Fair Use”. “Fair Use is defined as the following: (in US copyright law) the doctrine that brief excerpts of copyrighted material may, under certain circumstances, be quoted verbatim for purposes such as criticism, news reporting, teaching, and research, without the need for permission from or payment to the copyright holder.”

In Closing…

Each of us is an important part of the Paragon City Games community. If you see something that you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by emailing requests@paragoncitygames.com. We have a team that reviews these reports and works as quickly as possible to remove content that doesn’t meet our guidelines. Even if you or someone you know doesn’t have a Paragon City Games account, you can still file a report. When you complete the report, try to provide as much information as possible, such as links, usernames, and descriptions of the content, so we can find and review it quickly. We may remove entire posts if either the imagery or associated captions violate our guidelines. We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there’s risk of physical harm or threat to public safety.
